Every type of technology has pros and cons, which leads to the question: if technology like smartphones, are so bad, why do we even use them? But rather than going to the extreme and giving up on technology completely, Tony Reinke joins us on this episode of indoubt to examine these pros and cons, and ultimately acknowledge that technology isn’t all bad. Tony and Isaac urge us to recognize where we’re misusing our smartphones and how it can actually be a tool to help us flourish. In this episode, you’ll hear them elaborate on ways that our phones are changing us, but also how we, as Christians, can learn to navigate through that.
